God Save the Union.
May God save the Union! God grant it may
The pride of our people the boast of our land;
Still, still ‘mid the storm may our banner float
Unrent and unriven o’er earth and o’er sea.
May God save the Union! God grant, &c.
May God save the Union! we trust in its
In time of the tempest, in fear and in flight;
we’ll fail not, we’ll faint not, if still in the sky,
We see all the stars in the azure field fly.
May God save the Union! we trust, &c.
May God save the Union! still, still may it
Upheld by the strength of the patriot hand;
To cement it our fathers ensanguined the sod,
To keep it we kneel to a merciful God.
May God save the Union! still, still, &c.
May God save the Union! the Red, White and
Our States keep United the dreary day through;
Let the stars tell the tale of the glorious past,
And bind us in Union forever to last.
May God save the Union! the Red, &c.
